  1. Can you believe that CubeCart has been around since 2003? What started out as a small project has snowballed powering thousands of stores globally. If you have a success story you would allow us to publish we would be truly very grateful if you could share it with us. We need new merchants to realise the potential they have using CubeCart. This will help contribute to further growth, new features and an all round brighter future for everyone. Please feel free to email me personally at [email protected] with your company name, store URL and short success story of upto say 300 words. Many thanks to you all for your support.

  2. Dear Customers / CubeCart Community, It is with regret that after 3 years of providing content for CubeCart i intend to discontinue my skins and support. As per agreement i am issuing a 30 Day Notice period which will expire on 07/02/2022 (Existing customers have also been notified via email). After this date support/updates for my skins will no longer be provided by myself. I have spoken with Al and decided to donate the skins to CubeCart for free so that they don't go to waste (for which i am greatful to Al for accepting). It is my understanding that the skins will be released for free under CubeCart who will be the new owner/maintainer of the skins. This isn't the news i wanted to start the new year on and understand this may cause some concern and disappointment but i need to ultilize my time for work and my personal life and web development no longer fits in with this. What does this mean for your site? Your site will remain to function as normal and you are free to continue to use any skin you have purchased from me for as long as you require. In the event your purchased skin becomes incompatible with CubeCart in the future it will be your responsibility to make any changes or seek a 3rd party to assist. Alternatively, switch to the re-release version once released by the CubeCart team. Where can i download the latest version of my skin before the deadline? To avoid new customers from purchasing any skins i have had to unpublish them from the marketplace, please send me a PM or Email and i'll provide details how to obtain the last version released. (Please note - Only default versions of skins will be issued, please allow upto 24 hours for any requests to fulfilled .) Any questions or concerns please feel free to reply below, send me a PM or email, Best regards,

  3. Thanks for all the help with me developing and changing my skin, your help was always friendly and responsive. I've also downloaded the manual updates and would suggest anyone else to do so if you have a Nitefox's default skin but then gone on to modify it. (Just incase you ever need to reinstall at a later date). Wishing you well in all you do.

  4. Feeling very humble. Thank you on multiple levels. Other skins and extensions have just vanished so I'm hugely grateful firstly for dealing with this so professionally and responsibly. Secondly thanks for such a wonderful contribution to the open source community. I know for sure I can pass on my utmost respect and gratefulness from a significant proportion of CubeCart merchants that may not outwardly share it. I'd personally like to wish you all the very best with you new career move in the charity sector. I hope we can keep in touch.

  5. Using a text viewer, examine the contents of /includes/global.inc.php. The file will indicate the name of the administrative PHP script and the administrative folder name that CubeCart expects to use. Be sure those names appear in CubeCart's main folder.

  8. In the skin's config.xml, find the <image reference="category">. It is set for 800 pixels on the longest dimension. Change this to 900. It will auto-scale down to fit the container (which is 848 px wide). Next, you will need to find the CSS rule (I do not know where it would be.): .cat-hdr-img img { margin: 0px auto 5px; } Change to: .cat-hdr-img img { margin: 0 0 5px; } This CSS change will remove the margin that the browser adds to either side of the image, in equal part, to center the image in the slightly wider container. Be sure to clear Cubecart's cache.

  10. rework global configuration file found in /includes/ with your new database details. setup/restore database to new location. upload all files. adjust permissions of uploaded files. as a basic test, you can validate those permissions by uploading the latest setup directory from the installer and validate they all report OK. test...

  11. Well it's been a long week. New ventures meant I needed a more suitable web shop solution than the manual input Wysiwyg web builder I have used for the last three years. I have had 'proper' shopping carts in the past, but the web has moved on a lot in recent times with far more people using mobile devices to access content nowadays. The Wysiwyg web builder meant I had to design different layouts for different screen sizes by hand, which was a total drag. I have lost count of how many shopping cart solutions I have looked at over the last couple of weeks, but found many that no longer had viable download links (never a good start) and discovered many obsolete programs still out there, that are no longer developed and with subsequently no support network. During my forays I found out that my XAMPP server that allows me to test websites locally on my own computer was utter crud after recent 'upgrades', so moved to a WampServer which is wonderful in comparison. Anyway I eventually drew up a list of potential shopping carts. The one feature I wanted above all others, was an easy checkout process. Hesitation, confusion or complexity is no good for quick cash flow. Those in business will tell you, there is no business till you have the customers cash in your hand. The offerings I looked at included Woocommerce, Zen Cart, Opencart, Abantecart and of course Cubecart. All had their plus and minus points and some features which will appeal some some people, but not others. What did surprise me though is the flaws I found with some of the bigger players out there. Woocommerce I just found weird and confusing, Zen Cart still looked very dated and out of touch with its customer base, with many of the free community shared plugins conflicting with each. Most surprisingly of all Opencart seems to have created endless problems with its 'twig' modules in version three. Even the 'fix patch' didn't work and I couldn't even get one compatible skin (theme) to install without a plethora of error messages. Would I really want that on a live server? Answers on a postcard to..... That left it as a direct shoot out between AbanteCart and Cubecart, both of which are good programs with similar features and to their credit neither of them 'fell over' during testing. Looking at the programs on my offline server setup though, AbanteCart had nearly three times the number of operating files to Cubecart and more importantly a footprint of nearly 80mB, compared to Cubecart's sprightly 27.6mB. Where that becomes important, is if like myself you have more than one site on the same server space. Anyway before this turns into a saga, I had to do a lot of research and had a few long computer chained sessions often going beyond midnight these last few days. Making a bad choice with ecommerce software has the potential to make or break a business. I decided to go with Cubecart over everything else, as I found it very easy to work with. I didn't find it a stressful experience as unlike many others, it just worked flawlessly and did what it was supposed to do. I particularly like the fact you get a core program and just add the bits you want instead of being burdened with a pile of stuff you'll never use. From the front end view, the customer has a layout that is easy on the eyes, is straightforward to navigate and the checkout process is trauma free (and quick). That's the whole point with shopping carts though (or should be). Cubecart won't tick everyone's boxes, but having done the endless research, there are a lot of products out there that simply aren't fit for purpose. Been a long week, but time for a cold beer and unwind session....

  12. The developer will probably / should be releasing a new version of the skin to take account of all of the skin changes included in this recent version. However, if you are using a modified version, then that update will not automatically apply to your store and you should chat to the developer about this. If you dont make all the front end skin changes then you wont be able to take advantage of any fixes / new functionality that has been added - you may say that you dont need this functionality but it is always best to stay fully up to date because the situation simply gets worse and worse with each upgrade that is released - this is the problem with having custom changes

  13. I have hacked CC629 so that: one product can contain multiple digital files. This allows, for example, one to sell an "album" of several files - each file independently downloadable. will override the above when assigning one of the multiple files each to an option. This allows, for example, one to sell an audible book (available in multiple languages) - the customer having selected an option for an available language (or an audio file, choosing a filetype of MP3 or WAV). This is not a plug-in -- it's core code edits. I am not convinced CubeCart has (or could ever have) the requisite hooks. (But who knows?) I need a beta-tester. Post a PM.

  17. Email routing will automatically be set to "Automatic" or sometimes "Local Mail Exchanger" which in 99.99% of cases will be the same thing. You only need to set it to Remote if you are using external MX records pointing away from your hosting company which is effectively what Godaddy are forcing you to do by closing email ports. Some people choose to use gmail or other email service providers, but why should you have to ? Disabling php mail() is standard practice now for security reasons (WHM built in security advisor flags this as a high security risk if it is enabled !) and SMTP should always be used and configured to use SSL / TLS. Email sent via SMTP is much more secure, more likely to be delivered and not rejected or put into spam and isnt complicated to use. So much so, I would recommend that php mail() is removed as an option in CubeCart as it is very likely to disappear as an option in the near future Ian

  18. For anyone that uses git with CubeCart (or any other packages for that matter), cPanel have been adding a huge amount of functionality which will be included in V68 - see https://features.cpanel.net/topic/allow-users-to-install-websites-from-version-control V68 is already in Edge release status so most people will not have access to it yet, but V68 should be into general release in a few months (V66 has just been released in the last week) Ian

  20. The 'top menu' is the "Navigation" bar (or sometimes "Shop by Category" box). The menu is built from all the categories (enabled and unhidden) there are. There are also three special items: Home, Sale Items, and Gift Certificates. To add any other links to this group would require editing the skin template "box.navigation.php".

  21. Attached is a report that covers the edits needed to make CC645 run under PHP 8.1. Of course, without a comprehensive testing procedure plan - preferably automated - hitting every feature and function that CubeCart can do is impractical. As such, I advise against running this in a production environment, for now. However, I believe I've found and fixed the Fatal Errors, Warnings, Deprecated Notices, as well as a number of general notices that became visible under PHP 8.1, and made a number of code optimizations, but only in the core code. I have chosen to not make a fork of CC645. For those who want to slog through the edits, I hope they will be able to discern the reasons for each change. Any module encoded with ionCube will need a new version from the publisher. The publisher should also take it upon themselves to test their modules under PHP 8.1. Some additional insights can be found reading the latest Github issues. PHP8.1_Changes.txt.zip

  23. Your version of PHP may have been recently updated. An issue will be posted in the Github. In the meantime, using a programmer's text editor, make these changes to the file /classes/db/database.class.php: Line 175, from: public function column_sort($column_name, $display_text, $order_by = 'sort', $current_page, $current_sort = false, $anchor = false) Change to: public function column_sort($column_name, $display_text, $order_by = 'sort', $current_page = '', $current_sort = false, $anchor = false) Line 267, from: public function doSQLBackup($dropTables = false, $incStructure = true, $incRows = true, $file_name, $compress = false, $all_tables = false) Change to: public function doSQLBackup($dropTables = false, $incStructure = true, $incRows = true, $file_name = 'dummy.sql', $compress = false, $all_tables = false)

  25. I'd been having an ongoing issue with the checkout pages on mobiles/tablets being swamped by the menu and the basket appearing underneath (and out of sight). Customers couldn't always see the basket and often abandoned. A BIG THANKS to Al for his solution of disabling the menu on the basket/checkout pages

  26. They arent known for providing good support and know nothing (and care even less) about your CubeCart store - to be fair, not really any different from most of the other large generic hosting providers out there where you are simply a number - however they are relatively cheap and you get what you pay for with hosting ! CubeCart can often run out of process memory when processing large images but this would have been clearly recorded in the PHP error_log file as would any errors like this. Images would no have been the cause if you were getting this error when doing a search on the front end of the store though. I have not heard of any memory related issues when doing searches though. If they allow you to increase to 512MB then great, but do go into the PHP Info option in admin and check that the "Master" value also says 512 MB - if it is less than 512 MB, then that is what you will actually be allowed to use regardless of what you set it to

  28. I am thinking your Foundation skin is not current (shipped with CC642). From your screengrab, the Topbar is v5.5.1, while CC642's is v5.5.2. There is also: var back_text = $('#val_lang_back').text(); if(!back_text) { back_text = 'Back'; } Foundation.libs.topbar = { name : 'topbar', version : '5.5.2', settings : { index : 0, start_offset : 0, sticky_class : 'sticky', custom_back_text : true, back_text : back_text, mobile_show_parent_link : false, This finds the language string (which we did earlier), and uses it if present.

  32. With Best Sellers, in admin, Store Settings, Layout tab, "Number of popular products to display" can be set to zero. With Featured Products, in admin, Products, Edit a product, General tab, "Include in featured products" can be unchecked. (There is no general setting to inhibit the display of this box. To do so will need to be a skin edit.)

  33. @radman420 by data issue i mean that it would appear no data (in this case Products) is been supplied to the $POPULAR variable which is used to load the popular products section. Since it appears to happen in both the Foundation and Amzin skin that would suggest that it isn't caused by the skins. All i can suggest is pop a message in Technical Help section as this is beyond a skin issue. Perhaps something went wrong during the CubeCart Update or a setting has changed. I'm running 6.4.1 with Amzin and Foundation and the popular box is loading fine so i'm not sure whats causing yours to not load since you updated.

  34. This statement was added to recent versions of CubeCart so that the time/date which the database server calculates can be synced to the time/date that PHP calculates for your store. When not synced, it is possible for some misunderstandings to occur: the times shown in system event logs may be off by a few hours, Coupons may expire a few hours early or later than expected, and the time/date of when orders were updated indicating when they were shipped may cross over midnight to another day. After careful analysis for your personal needs, you may wish to simply comment out the PHP statement that is setting the timezone (one in controller.index.inc.php and one in admin.pre_session.inc.php).

  38. Save yourself a lot of time and hassle - meta keywords are a complete waste of time - no search engine uses this any longer so don’t bother filling them in. A unique Meta title is extremely important and you also need a good unique meta description. Also NEVER use the “recommended” setting to merge global SEO entries Ian

  43. Smarty would not have caused that extent of slowness - it was stupidly slow. Disabling the related product plugin fixed the issue and proved it was something to do with that - probably missing indexes, especially if you have lots of products. The search not working can often be caused by a missing index on the inventory table so do a table by table comparison of the indexes

  45. It should be possible to use the descriptions as a place to designate as retail or wholesale, as well as the different product codes. That would add to the differences in the two products. You should be able to tell if Google fusses by checking the Webmaster Tools>your store>Search Appearance on the left column>HTML Improvements.

  46. Hi Niall I have updated the Microdata plugin so two versions are available (for PHP 5.6 and above and another for PHP 5.5 and below) but unfortunately due to some caching issues with the Marketplace (which I have reported to Al), these are not showing. If you would like to register as a client at our site and open a ticket, I can let you have the correct version that way Ian

  48. This happens when CubeCart was upgraded from CC613 or earlier (I think) to a later version, but your web browser is still using the CSS file from that prior version. Please force your browser to reload the page's resources: images, CSS and javascript files. This can most often be done with CTRL-F5.

  49. Zaromnia In public_html, change the admin.whateveritis.php to what you want it to be. Then using ftp open up includes/global.inc.php and change the corresponding line for $glob['adminFile'] = 'your-new-filename.php'; No need to change the admin folder name. As for the GitHub post, suggested by Al, i'd suggest that you could possibly leave this alone for now. I'd imagine that this will be written in to the next update, so might not be an issue moving forward.
